Taiwan Elects Its First Female President

Tsai Ing-wen, the leader of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) won the victory in Taiwan’s presidential election on Saturday becoming the sovereign nation’s first female leader.

She has pledged to maintain peace with China (who wants Taiwan to be a part of China), but she vows also to defend Taiwan’s sovereignty.

She will start one of the toughest and most dangerous jobs, as China still sees Taiwan’s independence as a threat.

Now if only some other countries could maybe elect a female president for once? (*cough USA cough*)
